Could you help to improve the following pictures, making the real curves for the logo? I mean the boundary of the shield must be some sort of arc or curve, except for the rectangular shade on top.

You can also simplify a bit

enter image description here

\documentclass[tikz]{standalone}
\definecolor{coolblack}{rgb}{0.0, 0.18, 0.39}
\definecolor{cadetblue}{rgb}{0.37, 0.62, 0.63}
\begin{document}    
\begin{tikzpicture}
\draw[even odd rule,fill=coolblack,line width=1.8pt]

              (7,12) foreach\x in{0,...,3}{--++(\x*75:0.5cm)}--cycle
              (11.5,12) foreach\x in{0,...,3}{--++(\x*75:0.5cm)}--cycle;
\begin{scope}
    \clip(4,11) to[in=150,out=-90] (9.5,0) to[out=30,in=-90](15,11);
    \fill[fill=cadetblue, fill opacity=0.5,line width=1.8pt] (4,0) rectangle (15,11);
  \draw[double=coolblack,double distance=1.5cm,line width=1.8pt] (4,2)
                           --++(60:8cm) --++(-60:3cm) --++(60:3cm) --++(-60:8cm);
\end{scope}
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

Another possibility is using controls

You can change the -- to to[in=<angle>,out=<angle>] to make the line curved. Something like this:

You'll need a finer tuning of the in and out angles to get a better picture.

I have changed the left side only.

Another way is to ask your favorite computer algebra system to find a function that approximates the contour.
